Could you tell within 10 minutes of being in a city if you could live there? I can, maybe it’s a gift, maybe everyone can in some way. There aren’t many places that I’ve been that I could see myself living my best life in, but the ones I do, always have an impact! Like Portland in the US or Venice in Italy and 1 of the following 3 below:
When I think of Barcelona – what stands out to me more than anything is the architecture. The buildings have so much depth and detail, they don’t look or feel real at times. Antoni Gaudi’s impact and influence is wonderfully prominent throughout the city, giving tourists and locals a taste of his unique, innovative mind – all the while taking you back to when Art Nouveau was in its prime. This trip was my first ever holiday with my boyfriend. He’d suprised me for my 18th (over 5 years ago now) as he knew I was researching Gaudi for my FMP during my final year of college. Here is what we got up to. A throwback to Barcelona!
Welcome to part 2 of Best birthday Bits (read pt.1 here) I love capturing a new place especially when that place is old. I also have thing for photographing doors, I find it fascinating and beautiful to see the variation in them – in this village they have a wonderful eclectic mix – how cute is bridge cottage?
My boyfriend and I decided to take a spontaneous road trip down highway 101 on the West Coast of America starting in Portland Oregon and ending in LA California. It was life changing inspiring holiday that consisted of exploring the wonderful modern city of Portland followed by nights sleeping in our little rented Ford Fiesta in the amazing giant red woods, running up the hills of San Francisco (not quite running) and finishing with cocktails at universal studios in LA. I have promised James that I will write a memoir which I will do in the summer when I have more time to dedicate to this blog 24/7. Until then I hope you can enjoy the pictures we took on our 1,400 mile trip of a lifetime.
